University Art Galleries Interim Director, Amy Fill and USD Graphic Design student, Lacey McLouth created a beautiful window installation for the I.D. Weeks library building. Using red removable vinyl, they hand cut the shapes and designs to create a symmetrical, lace-like pattern that was applied to the windows. Courtney Lavallie, UAG Gallery Assistant and Martha Aguirre, Oscar Howe Gallery Attendant assisted Lacey with the installation process. The artists state that art does not have to exist in a formal gallery space and with this project, we hope to elevate and activate a common shared space.
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.
